[WNYLUG-Announce] Reminder - Database Seminar for May 12, 2016 - Data as a Service

This meetup is at 7:00PM on Thursday, May 12, in Talbert Hall 103 on the 
UB North campus.

One of the relatively new "buzzwords" in the technology world is DBaaS 
(Database as a Service). It is experiencing significant flux and 
technology investment as major players try to snap up a piece of this 
rapidly growing service area. But what is it really? How does it compare 
to more traditional database services and what is its value prop? In 
May, Tyler Poland will present on DBaaS and cover some of this ground 
and more as we explore what it means to have a database in the Cloud. 
Tyler's job title is Data Support Analyst at EngineYard. Those of you 
who attend regularly know him well. He has spoken to us before.

This meetup will be at 7:00PM on Thursday, May 12, in Talbert Hall 103 
on the UB North Campus.

Talbert Hall is more or less between the Governor's and Hochstetter 
parking lots. It is next to the Natural Sciences Complex. Room 103 is on 
the same level as the Hochstetter lots. No permit is required after 3:00 PM.

We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing. Let's set 
7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk starting at 7:15.

Our current sponsor is Stark and Wayne. Stark & Wayne LLC is a US-based 
consultancy that specializes in Cloud Foundry & BOSH. They are a 
founding Silver member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation and are widely 
recognized as the leading consultancy, community contributors, and 
educators for both Cloud Foundry & BOSH.

Stark & Wayne works on open source projects to make it easier for 
companies and their staff to discover Cloud Foundry, onboard it into 
their organization, and have success with it. They are also the creators 
and maintainers of popular open source projects bosh-bootstrap 
<http://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/bosh-bootstrap>, bosh-gen 
<http://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/bosh-gen>, bosh-workspace 
and the staticfile-buildpack 
<https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/staticfile-buildpack/> which 
was recently promoted into the Cloud Foundry Incubator program for 
consideration as a first-class Cloud Foundry code base. We created the 
end-to-end tool chain 
<https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/terraform-aws-cf-install> for 
booting up Cloud Foundry into a new AWS VPC.

Please rsvp (http://www.meetup.com/buffalolab/events/230051861/
